Here I am. The Fairy Queen from Gilbert and Sullivan’s Iolanthe. Check out those eyelashes! They are feathers if you can believe it. I love them a whole bunch more than I thought I would. I’m not sure what that says about me, although in my friend’s opinion it means that I will soon be going to Burning Man. Having never been, I’m not sure how to take that. I also have Vulcan-esque ears which you can’t see in this photo. My costume is a vision of crinkled organza that is some kind of hybrid between gypsy, Arabian Nights, court jester and princess. My wand is not some twinkie dollar store find, but a full-on Gandalf. I am quite literally in my glory. <sigh>
Yes, there are other people in the cast too. I know it’s not a one-woman show. Hey, it’s my blog. It can be all about me for a moment.
But really, you should come. We’re not half bad for community theatre. The show has really hit its stride. We close May 25, 2008 (and that show is sold out) so don’t wait!
